Southern director Murugadoss hit gold by adapting Christopher Nolan's Memento for the big screen. He made the successful Ghajini based on the unique 'Short Term Memory Loss' theme. The unusual revenge saga worked big time.
It also impressed Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan in the process. Now Aamir's Hindi version of Ghajini is the most anticipated film this Christmas. Seems like many others, including King Khan is mighty impressed by the sleek promos of Ghajini and Aamir's macho look.
The buzz is that Shahrukh Khan has now zeroed in on the director and he's really keen on doing his next film with him. Cinematographer Ravi K Chandran who has filmed the actor's projects Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, My Name is Khan as well as commercials is said to have recommended Murugadoss.
In fact some officials from King Khan's Red Chillies met him recently to discuss some scripts. However, things would be finalized by first week of January after the box office results of Ghajini are out. In fact, South Indian actress Asin, the female lead in Ghajini, has assured that she would give her dates to the project.
Reportedly the filmmaker had plans to work with Southern actor Surya after Ghajini. But with Shahrukh around, it's likely that the original plan has changed. After all, one big Khan to another would be a much better bet. We understand very well, Mr Murugadoss!
